by the i.m.f. japan, for example, has also fallen behind in its deficit goals. and to make matters worse standard & poor's downgraded japan's credit rating. if we do not face the reality and take serious steps now to confront this challenge, we will find ourselves in a similar position. the impact will be disastrous, just as it's been in greece and portugal and ireland. unfortunately, this reality has not yet sunk in in enough places in washington, d.c. president obama asked congress to increase the debt ceiling, allowing our country to take on even more debt. but it would be irresponsible to allow more spending without a serious plan in place to reduce the deficit. americans are looking for leadership in washington to help create jobs and get our economy back on its feet. but lately they heard a lot of partisan rhetoric and all they've seen is more government spending. it is time for our government to change direction and to change dramatically. we must work together to restrain spending and to put in place progrowth measures that create jobs. by saying both no to more spending and yes

. >> look at european's and japan's statistics. they are lower. if any, these are optimistic figures. >> right. japan, as you know, has a birthrate of 1.25. their population in 2005 has been declining even those people are living so much longer. it is declines because the birthrate is low and they have essentially no net immigration. we are still having at least essential replacement birthrates and having net immigration, so good point. our problem is significant, but it's actually worse elsewhere. if that's any solace, that's good news. look at the birthrate of 2.0, add in the net immigration, it makes it 2.3. what that means is while the birthrate dropped from about 3 down to 2, with the the help of immigration, it's at 2.3. it's not quite as bad as just looking at birthrates, but still significant. the implications of this on social security and beyond social security clearly, we can look at what has happened to the relationship between the number of workers and the number of beneficiaries. this is very similar to a pure demographic ratio that's oftentimes looked at which is the a
